Join us for the final film screening of the 17th annual Polish Film Festival. In partnership with the Kosciuszko Foundation (New England Chapter), Elms College will screen Perła w koronie (Pearl in the Crown) (1972).

Directed by Kazimierz Kutz, this film is set during the Silesian Uprising of the 1920s. The German owners of a mine decide that it is unprofitable and want to close it by flooding it. In response, the miners go on strike. This film was entered into the 1972 Cannes Film Festival.

Polish films will have English subtitles. This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. For more information, contact ffestival456@gmail.com.
